 SWANS NAME COLLINS 

Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong delayed naming a 20th man and the ease which Darrell Collins trained were highlights of last night's training sessions in the lead-up to tomorrow's Riverina Football League grand final. 
Collins completed a strict fitness test to the satisfaction of Swans' captain-coach Les Parish and was included for the Narrandera Sportsground decider. A cut on Collins' shin became infected last week and caused blood poisoning. He was on crutches most of the week and couldn't train on Wednesday night. It will be Collins last game after more than a decade with the Swans. 
 Back pocket Ricky Burdett was recalled after missing the second semi-final with a knee injury. Burdett replaced defender Paul Young, who injured a shoulder in the second semi-final against GGGM and failed a fitness test last night.
The Lions captain-coach Tony Hughes will finalise his team this morning after including rover Mark Carroll who trained confidently last night. Carroll had been sidelined for several weeks with a nagging thigh injury and broke down in his preparation for the second semi-final. Hughes said last night he was extremely confident Carroll would play. "We're just waiting to see whether he pulls up sore in the morning before deciding," Hughes said. Anthony Quinn, a utility player, stands to lose his place in the team if Carroll is included.  
Parish was also waiting to see how Collins recovered from training and said he would make a change if necessary. "Darrell trained quite well and got a place on the proviso he comes up fit tomorrow (Saturday)," Parish said. "He's always played under a lot of pain with a back injury he's been carrying. 
"He was running, marking and tackling and came through okay. His leg has improved this week. He was still using crutches as a precaution on Wednesday but could walk and run..

"He's the type who's going to give it everything - he has earned his place.

Young failed a solid fitness test and Parish wasn't prepared to risk his shoulder in the grand final. "It's a hard decision to make - it's never easy telling a young bloke he's not in the grand final team," Parish said. "We were going to give him until tomorrow but his shoulder just wasn't right." He could tackle but couldn't take a bump and there's no guarantee he's not going to get a bump in the game." 
Parish was not overly concerned with any changes the Lions opted to make. "It doesn't really matter," Parish said. "We'll see what happens when we get out there. Everyone's got a man to pick, haven't they?

 LIONS BRUSH SWANS ASIDE TO TAKE RFL CROWN 

A spirited Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong brushed aside Griffith's feeble attempt to recapture premiership glory when the Lions won an emotion charged Riverina Football League grand final by 38 points at Narrandera Sportsground. The Lions, who last won a premiership in 1984, avenged their 73-point second semi-final loss inflicted by the Swans with an all-the-way 16.10 (106) to 10.8 (68) victory.
Griffith were chasing its first premiership since last winning the title, in the old South West League, way back in 1968. The Swans last played in a grand final was in 1972. But once again the Swans were sent packing - this time by a more committed GGGM side that showed aggression at the ball and more determination in its bid to cap a fine season. Yesterday's grand final was a spiteful match and both teams showed their willingness early in the game with several physical clashes arousing the large crowd which paid a record $19,800 at the gate.
Griffith captain-coach Les Parish was charged with striking GGGM halfback flanker Lewis Winter after clashing 15 minutes into the second quarter. GGGM Quinn Medal winner Jed Lawton had his number taken for allegedly striking Griffith rover Jamie Bennett, one of the Swans' best, in the opening quarter. And Griffith centre half forward Darrell Collins, who was in doubt all week with an illness, was carried from the ground 10 minutes into the first quarter after a heavy tackle by Lions' centre halfback Wayne Brown. Collins, who was badly concussed, took no further part in the game and was treated by ambulance officers at the ground. 
GGGM captain-coach and centreman Tony Hughes was delighted with the pressure his players applied at crucial stages of the match. "We didn't have one passenger out their today," Hughes said. "The pressure we applied and the boys' determination all came together. "Our backline was tremendous - they ran all day. "I told everyone before the game we had to play it up the middle and keep at the ball. It just wasn't our big name players doing the work today - we had everyone contributing."
Hughes believes the Lions' second semi-final loss to Griffith went a long way towards preparing the  players for a mentally tough two weeks. "We lost to Griffith but combined well in the preliminary final and we beat Tigers by 68 points," Hughes said. "I believe today's win is just a flow on from that win against Tigers. We built up in that game and the momentum carried on through today."
Parish, always disappointed with a loss, was confident his players had learned from the experience of losing a grand final. "It's a hard way to learn - it's very disappointing to lose the grand final," Parish said. "But sometimes you have to taste the hurt of defeat to know how great it is to win."
Parish recognised the Lions for their effort they put into the match. "They were far more committed than us," he said. "Things we tried didn't come off - things they tried did. "I thought our backline played very well. We got some good running from there but broke down in the forward line. Apart from Shane Ruyg we didn't really have an effective forward. He tried to get them moving up there."
The Lions had several players featuring throughout the game. Rovers Jamie Crozier, the best player afield, Shane Lenon capitalised on the solid ruck work by John Lawton. Lenon played a loose man in defence and on the ball and gathered 29 possessions with Crozier (22 possessions) and ruck rover Jed Lawton (31) key players in providing constant drive. 
The Lions last line nullified Griffith's attack. Glenn Evans at fullback and back pockets Damien Carroll and David Logan cleared effectively all day. Halfback flanker Jason Hamblin also generated play from the backline.
Centre halfback Wayne Brown was up there with the best of them, teenage wingman Daniel McPherson enjoyed a top duel with Swans' Joe Agresta while centre half forward Stephen Carroll and full forward Mick Walsh sparked forward movements. Half forward flanker David Currie bagged five goals from as many attempts to cap off a top finals series while Hughes worked hard in the centre against Parish.
Mark Carroll, included in the side as 20th man ahead of Anthony Quinn on Saturday morning, came on for Winter who left the ground after a clash with Parish. Winter took no further part in the game. ... to be continued ... page missing.

Swans honour winners

By Brian Files

The Griffith Australian Football Club wrapped up a good season with the presentation night held on Saturday at the Ex-Servicemen's Club.

The highlight of the evening was the attendance of Melbourne Football Club's full forward Allen Jakovich who spoke to the large crowd in attendance.

He acknowledged all of the winners and made the comment that players have to do that little bit extra if the club wants to be a power in the RFL next season.

There were plenty of awards handed out at the presentation and none were more deserving than the life memberships bestowed on president Roy Agresta and vice-president Stephen Best.

Peter King took out the best and fairest in first grade, Ian Geddes was adjudged the most consistent, Jamie Bennett the most improved, Mark O'Connor the best utility and Shane Ruyg kicked the most goals.

In the coach's award, Paul Biron received the trophy, Peter King won the special award with 24 points and Chris Conlan the best in the finals.

In reserve grade, Colin Cassidy was the best and fairest and Christian Files picked up the most consistent award.

Jamie Reid took out the most improved, Grant Cameron was awarded the best utility and most goals were kicked by Cassidy.

Cassidy made it a treble when he picked up the special award with 26 votes and David Overs was presented with the coach's award, while captain of the side, Peter McDiarmid was adjudged to be best in the finals.

In the premiership winning under 18 side, Tony Butcher received the best and fairest and the special award with 30 votes, Craig Ford won the most consistent trophy, Graham Foley, best utility and Jason Vaccari was the best goal kicker.

A special presentation of the Fred Owen Memorial Shield by Garry Owen for the under 18 encouragement award went to the ever improving Glen Collis.

In the netball, Karen Evans was adjudged best and fairest and Nicole Hathaway won the coach's award, while all players received a medal as thanks for their efforts during the season.

The Joan Hicks Memorial Shield, presented by Member for Riverina Darling Noel Hicks, for the most conscientious player in the club went to Adrian Pavese for his services during the year and the Bill Simmons Memorial award for the best club person went to Barry Sidlow.

Last, but not least, was the award donated by club stalwart Mrs Ronnie Williams for the most promising player in the under 18's and this was won by Paul Rovere, while a special presentation of a Swans jumper went to Ben Dalnevo.
